I think you'll have to write your own code that reads the keystore
password from the console (and displays it, since I don't think Java can
control a pty device very well) and then sets up Tomcat. If you're
trying to be cute, you could pop-up a tiny GUI window to get the
password, but that will significantly increase the amount of memory
required just to get Tomcat started because the GUI subsystem must be
started.

Or, you could hack Tomcat's existing bootstrap classes to do the same
thing, but it might end up being more complicated than you think
(because IIRC Tomcat uses commons-digester to configure everything).

In either case, you'll have to figure out how to get Tomcat into the
background after accepting the password, too, unless you just expect
users to press CTLR-Z and then type "bg" or whatever.
